Rurouni Kenshin Variant Story: The Criminal Ashitarō

New Rurouni Kenshin-2 chapter manga

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...racter/.108437



It will be focused on samurai Ashitarō Hasegawa who looks a mix between teenager Yahiko and Gintoki Sakata from Gintama. I hope Kenshin's family and/or Yahiko meet him.

From what i heard the MC is the madman Shishio successor but i doubt he will go evil like Shishio.
The reason is #1 He is MC, that obvious reason even if him began evil he will downright to redemption path as Kenshin did #2 I don't see any reason why madman ambition need to be revived again, Shishio ambition as good as dead especially in rurouni kenshin after ending.

I hope he will face teen Yahiko in battle. Kenshin has already fought in that movie duology about Kyoto, the reboot manga, and three live action films.

Compared to Kenshin's popularity, how popular have Watsuki Nobuhiro's post-Kenshin manga titles been? I'm aware he's made a few, including some Frankenstein-themed one.

PS. I wonder why no one's ever made an adaptation of the 3rd and final manga arc, the Jinchu one. You'd think the Shishio arc was more popular. That said, I wonder if a remake of the Kenshin anime that adapts everything from the manga up to the final Jinchu arc could be possibly made in the future, similar to the Parasyte anime.

Today it was revealed that this two part manga will act as an epilogue to a new Rurouni Kenshin manga centered in Hokkaido. For the ones who don't know, Watsuki explained in volume 28 that he had plans to make a "Hokkaido arc" but he was kinda tired so he finished the series with Jinchu.

Yeah, I heard about that too.
I was a big fan of this series when it was being serialised but hearing that there will be a continuation....didnt hype me much as I thought.

I guess the whole Kenshin "fever" died many years ago already even if there was a live-film (and also for the fact that many classic series getting a sequel or continuation is cooling down the heat).

Hopefully the plot will be awesome enough to bring back the fever.

I am somewhat split between sadness that Watsuki won't be doing anything original again, and excited over the prospect of new Kenshin content. I was already interested in this one shot series since I loved the Shishio one shot a few years that were to promote the film. So I'm down wih a sequel series, but I hope it will be good.

Well, i am not surprise if Watsuki will milk Kenshin from now on
Most of Watsuki new series aren't really popular as RK so make sense.
Although to note Watsuki continue Kenshin again wasn't bad as Sunrise did to CG.
CG literally has perfect closure ending and RK has perfect ending yet him still able to expand the story again and him still able to expand the in story before ending considering there are some people whose not get their ending yet like Soujiro.

So we are now in the era where classic works got dug out from its grave and resuscitate it so they can milking it for another decade. Pretty sad if you ask me.

Well i am not really looking forward on it though despite that i am the big fan of Kenshin in the past . I wonder how many people in today can accept Kenshin's unwillingness to kill motto?

Are there any English translations (fan/official) of the Ashitaro manga?

I don't know how we can talk about RK being "milked" when it hasn't even had one complete anime adaptation.

Depending on how this new Hokkaido arc plays out, I'll be happy to see more Kenshin, its always been one of my favorite series ever. Although the original ended very well, I thought, and its too bad the anime itself killed itself off due to endless fillers.

This has somehow slipped from my mind when I first heard the news, but with this sequel there is an even greater chance at a remake of the entire manga series (plus this prologue+sequel) into a new anime.

So, that's definitely a plus.

As for whether RK is milked, it's a popular franchise that a lot of people (in Japan and overseas) love. It hadn't gotten a complete anime adaptation (yet, we hope) but it continues to have many side stories, manga retellings, successful live action films and some recent OVA's.

I'm personally just lamenting that Watsuki didn't come back with something new. I love RK, but I also want to see him also succeed doing other things.
